Sentimental Tommy (1921) -- Lost Silent
29 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The people of Thrums ostracize Grizel ( May McAvoy ), a child of 12, and her mother, known as The Painted Lady ( Mabel Taliaferro ) , until newcomer Tommy Sandys ( Gareth Hughes ), a highly imaginative boy, comes to the girl's rescue and they become inseparable friends. Six years later Tommy returns from London, where he has achieved success as an author, and finds that Grizel still loves him. In a sentimental gesture he proposes, but she, realizing that he does not love her, rejects him. In London, Tommy is lionized by Lady Alice Pippinworth ( Virginia Valli ), and he follows her to Switzerland. Having lost her mother and believing that Tommy needs her, Grizel comes to him but is overcome by grief to see his love for Lady Pippinworth. Remorseful, Tommy returns home, and after two years of his careful nursing Grizel regains her sanity. Tommy lets her know that he cared for her out of his love for her and not pity, Grizel is happy.

This 1921 silent drama was based on James M Barrie's novel and play. Produced by Famous Players-Lasky Corporation and filmed on locations at the Kaufman Astoria Studios, Queens, New York City, this film made a star of Gareth Hughes, and was Mary Astor's earliest role in a film, however, her scenes were sadly deleted before the films release. Sentimental Tommy was one of the biggest Paramount hits of 1921, and tragically now remains a lost silent.
